dragonfly and a butterfly. I really hope to print some new pieces with these blocks combined with the new block that I am working on this month. Maybe over the weekend?
Things are moving along. We have bumps in the road for sure as we get to know our baby and her needs but we are figuring them out.
One thing we are learning is she likes to eat, a lot. She woke up last night and we went into our routine of him changing her while I pumped in the other room. We gave her the entire 4oz and she seemed pretty chill after that. But would get fussy again after 5-10 minutes. This went on for awhile and eventually we kept giving her more and more milk and in the end she sucked down over 7oz before she finally went down around 3am. When she woke up again she took another four, and then 3 the next time. Aren't their stomachs supposed to be the size of golf balls where is it all going?
I haven't had time for art other than some sketching I did before bed. It stinks but that is just how it is I guess. She is sleeping (finally) right now so I may work on carving a bit after posting this. But I also have some netflix to return that I would like to get in the post box before pickup at one. It only takes under 10 minutes to walk there and back but that can mean the difference between having some me time or not.
Jon's parents will not be coming today as we thought. They are coming next Thursday, which is probably better in the long run. This means that they will be around to help care for the baby (and us) when the JPOS is going on so my chances of actually being able to participate in the event just went up dramatically. And my stress level about it went down. I wish we had more family close to us. At least we have my aunt and her family in RI because they are great, but their pet allergies keep them from being able to go into our home. I'm really happy that my cousin was able to meet blee before she left for a semester in London and I hope to go to RI soon so her brother, who was working during their visit at the hospital, can meet her too.
My father is now talking about visiting in early October. I hope it happens. That would be a good time to head to RI, though since he is not planning on renting a car I don't know if that is going to work. We can't exactly fit four adults, one child and one baby in our Corolla.
